Mine turned out really good! I had read through the comments, and had taken the advice of some of the other readers regarding getting the fudge to harden properly. First of all, I only used one 7 oz jar of marshmallow cream (1.5 cups). Secondly, I had to boil it a bit longer to get it to soft ball stage, which is where fudge has to be in order to set properly. Instead of 5 minutes, it was more like 6 or even 6 1/2 minutes. You don't have to use a candy thermometer, but at least look on the 'net to see how to test for soft ball stage. One final tip: Mix your peanut butter, marshmallow cream and vanilla all together in a heat-proof bowl while you are boiling the other mixture, and then pour the boiling mixture over the peanut butter mixture in the heat-proof bowl. If you don't, you'll end up with scorched, dark bits of peanut butter throughout your fudge. It doesn't affect the taste, but it does take away from the appearance.
